Teacher Spotlight: Ms. Murray

Ms. Murray and Jennifer A. at the poem reading event at Barnes & Noble.

July 17, 2015

On Monday, April 13th, Barnes & Noble invited Sacred Heart 3rd-5th grade students to celebrate one of our 4th grade teachers, Ms. Murray. A poem written by one of her former students, Jennifer A., was selected as the winner amongst the entries received at the Barnes & Noble Upper East Side store in the annual “My Favorite Teacher Contest.” 

Students listened to Jennifer read her poem and present Ms. Murray with a certificate of recognition. Here is a small excerpt from her poem, entitled “Everything Was New to Me”:

    “I was alone in a crowd, but you helped me. You took your time with me. You understood me...You encouraged me to push myself. To try again and again to succeed...And I thank you greatly for that.”

Congratulations, Ms. Murray, and thank you for the amazing dedication you have for your students!
